    Shoot The Messenger - disable messenger popups

    Shoot The Messenger is a very simple tool that helps you get rid of annoying IP based Messenger popup ads (the ones that use the Windows Messenger service). These popups are unlike regular popups, since they abuse the Messenger Service, which is intended to send text messages across a network, using the computer`s IP address. They can appear as dialog box on your desktop if you have the Messenger Service enabled and are not using a firewall. Shoot The Messenger will display the current status of the Messenger Service and allows you to turn it off/on with a simple click, without having to go into the Windows configurations panel. The program does not need to be running after the service has been turned on or off. It can also be used from the commandline.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
